'This book represents a valuable source of niformation for anyone working with children and young people. The book is well organised, comprehensive, accessible and very timely. It is a book that will be useful both for students and professionals in this area and provides a good overview and explanation of a wide range of highly relevant topics direcctly linked to integrated working. An excellent book which I highly recommend.'

'It is a book that respects the reader by providing a wealth of research and theory, but refrains from telling you 'how to'. Instead, it invites you to reflect, engage with and to consider critically...'
-Early Years Educator

'An informative and interesting text that is highly suitable for undergraduate students studying on programmes concerned with children, young people and families. The text encourages students to reflect on and develop their understanding. Recommended'
